Amsterdam import Edial Dekker is an avid urban gardener, cook and surfer. These days though, he might be better known as the co-founder and CEO of Berlin-based Gidsy, a marketplace for authentic experiences. Anyone in the world can explore, offer and book pretty much anything—from musical walking tours, squid cooking courses, fundraising workshops and street-photography master classes. Edial moved to Berlin about three years ago and has no plans of moving anywhere else soon.
Just as Dekker has created his own space to flourish in the city, he’s fascinated in how other Berliners have claimed their own spaces to forge a unique identity. He’s assembled some of his favorite places for Unlike, demonstrating how this city is endlessly malleable to the aspirations of those who inhabit it.
